It’s that time of the year when football fans all over get ready for the big GAME day. Super Bowl Sunday is a few weeks away so now is the time to start preparing for the day. Whether you are having friends over, visiting friends or even having a tailgate party, you are going to need food, lots of food throughout the day.

What To Serve at a Football Party

Since a football game usually lasts a few hours you need to decide what to serve and when to serve it. Do you want just appetizers, finger foods or a halftime meal? Once you have all that figured out you can plan a touchdown menu.

So you need some Super Bowl recipe ideas now that you have decided to invite friends over to enjoy the game. You might want to have an assortment of finger foods and appetizers on a table throughout the day refilling the platters as they empty. Just make sure your guests save room for your halftime football party foods.

Appetizers and Finger Foods

Something quick and easy to snack on during the Super Bowl game.

  • chicken wings
  • potato skins
  • spinach dip
  • nachos
  • cheese and crackers

Halftime Meal

During Super Bowl halftime, there is a break from the game and a few performances. This is the perfect time to fill your belly with a bit more than just a snack.

  • burgers
  • taco bar
  • Chilli
  • Pinwheel bites
  • Meatballs
  • salads

Here are some ideas for your tailgate party food menu:

Super Bowl recipe ideas

My personal favourite football party food to serve when I’m entertaining for Football Sunday is the chili bar. I start the chili in my crockpot early in the morning, go about the rest of my Sunday morning activities, and about an hour before our friends start arriving, I prepare the accoutrements and set up the serving station. Chili is an easy and universally-loved dish, and it’s perfect as the weather starts to get colder. Plus, your guests are able to customize their dish however they like.

Sheet Pan Nachos and Turkey Taco Party Cups are also our family favourite Super Bowl recipes for a party at our house!
